«We’d always hoped that people would want to dance to our stuff, but there was no obvious scene that we belonged to.» Así recuerda el líder de Son Of Sam, Chris Bishop, la época en la que junto a Razor Robbie, Rob Stokes y Sam Harris dieron forma a un ultra desconocido proyecto que fundía tratamientos y espíritu industrial, música Disco y trazos de Electro primitivo.

La reverberación del único material lanzado por el combo de West Yorkshire entre 1984 y 1985 ha llegado a Barcelona y a oídos de Jordi Serrano, quien ha puesto en marcha la maquinaria de Domestica Records y compilado por primera vez todas las canciones e inéditos en formato vinilo.

La reedición está dividida en dos vinilos en formato de 12″ y un doble LP limitado a 50 copias en el que se recogen ambos volúmenes: «The Collapse Of Ancient Funk Vol. 1 & Vol. 2».

Aquí abajo más impresiones sobre la época del propio Bishop:

«Sometime during 1984, during a period of Orwellian mass unemployment, I moved into a house in Leeds that had a basement filled with the collective equipment of The Cassandra Complex, O Yuki Conjugate and Mr Tom Fazzini. My pathetic contribution was the first Korg drum machine which nobody used and was eventually bought by Jez from Utah Saints. I don’t suppose he used it either. It sounded awful.» 

«Music at this time was largely devoted to guitar-oriented production, but the unwitting advantage these people had was our mistrust of the fretboard. Then Electro happened, we got an 808, and Son of Sam was born when I needed a nasty name to scribble on a cassette. As time went on, Razors and Mr Cheese fleshed my meanderings out into a «real band», we played a few dates around Europe, brought out some vinyl on Rouska and then logically destroyed ourselves when Techno arrived.»
